Shutdown Day 21

Shutdown Day 21

Friday, January 11, marks Day 21 of the partial federal government shutdown. This ties the record set in December 1995 for the longest funding gap in the modern era of federal budgets. Today (1/11) also marks the day that some 800,000 federal workers will miss their first paycheck. Assuming a deal isn't reached today (which isn't very likely), Saturday, January 12 will set a new record. Every day the shutdown continues beyond January 12 will continue to set a new record.

Keeping Water at the Top of Everyone’s Mind

One of the most important roles ASDWA has is to make sure no one stops thinking about water. Whether that means spending time on the Hill to speak with Congressional staff about drinking water issues, or expanding the reach of our communications to the public by way of social media, ASDWA is constantly working to advance our message of public health protection on behalf of our members. Having safe drinking water is taken for granted by many, so ASDWA continually emphasizes drinking water’s importance for public health and for the economy.
